Comfortably Dumb, B&H Photo
29 December 2014
Excerpt: I use this mainly for Skype. I wanted much better resolution and image quality than my laptop's built in webcam, and that I got. Did much better in less light - to be expected. I really like the base of the camera - has the lip to hang it over a monitor/tv plus the tripod mount. The lens cover is just as others have said, it is loose and the only problem so far (minor).
Excerpt: Overall, it is a good product. The image quality is "good". My one issue is a little bit of a delay, especially with high quality imagning. It may be my computer, but other than that, I have no complaints.
Excerpt: I bought this specifically to use on a Mac and, although it doesn't have the control panel like you'd find on Windows, it works just fine.The mount is a little funky. The picture makes it look a bit like a C-clamp but that lower tongue is flexible. you basically use that upper lip and the tongue to wedge it onto your monitor. The tongue also has a 1/4-20 tripod mount in case you'd like to make a more steady mount.
Excerpt: I use this camera for daytime surveillance of my home driveway entrance so that anytime I'm on my computer I can see anyone who arrives. I leave it in 720 mode instead of 1080 so that I can leave it zoomed in.
Summary: Camera works well, but not as good as I expected. This camera was rated pretty high so for the price, I'm happy with it. If I could buy this again..... I might try something else. The picture is clear, but I don't think it is 1080P HD. There was a grainy look and a little blurry. I have used this camera for posting videos online and for video chats. Like I said, for the price it works well, but fall short of my expectations.
Excerpt: Very good image quality. Very easy to setup if you have windows 7 or 8. Just plug it in and the software automatically downloads and installs.Only problem that I think of is the lens cap is just soft rubber and doesnt fit very tightly. It tends to just fall out from time to time on its own.
